Spanish wine production methods and expansion rate have moved forward considerably since Alexander Hadleigh Wine Merchants first started buying and selling Iberian Wines over 40 years ago. The drive to improving quality has been equally matched by the ever increasing officially designated wine regions of Spain. No other European wine country comes any where near this phenomenal and certainly successful expansion and diversification.

Alexander Hadleigh Wine Merchants of Southampton, Hampshire, UK are committed followers of Spanish Wines and specialise in SEVEN of the major and authoritatively designated wine regions.

These regions being FIRST Rioja…..a region of 3 subzones, namely Rioja Baja, Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa. All three producing red and white wines of varying styles and qualities to suit the various markets they specialise in, many growers will be producing good quality wines to match the average person's budget, while others will focusing on the top end of the market where fine Rioja Wines will be commanding prices in excess of thirty pounds a bottle. Many followers of Spanish Wines in the UK are probably more familiar with Rioja Wines than any other Spanish Wines, because of Rioja's massive exposure in the many hotels and restaurants around the Spanish Mediterranean Coastline.

Our SECOND region is the equally famous Ribera del Duero located just South of Rioja and Navarra. Ribera del Duero is highly respected by many and many see the region as Spain's most prestigious wine growing area……. it conjures up names like Pingus, Pesquera and Vega Sicilia, all great wines that command World wide respect. In reality Ribera del Duero produces great wines and fine quality wines to suit most budgets.

The THIRD region we cover is Rias Bais, an area quite different from Rioja and Ribera del Duero…..seafood is king in Galicia and so are the white wines of Rias Baixas. Much greener and damper, this landscape is not like most other parts of Spain and consequently so are the wines which are dominated by the white Albarino grape and the wine known of the same name is now found in most seafood restaurants in Spain and also the UK.

Staying towards the North of Spain our FOURTH region listed is Navarra, maybe a wine province that needs a little more publicity. There is certainly a wrong perception that wines of Navarra are of lesser standing than its close neighbours Rioja and Ribera del Duero…..not true….since Navarra produces many big lucious red wines from blends of Spanish and French grapes (yes French grapes) with some wonderful labels such as Ochoa and Chivite whose wines grace many a fine table in Europe.

Catalunya is our FIFTH listing and the wider region supports two of the well known appellations in Penedes and the distinguished Priorato wine. One could say Penedes wines are for everyday drinking and Priorato for special occasions, although there are exceptions.

Castilla Y Leon is our SIXTH region which includes three ever improving subzones of Toro, Rueda and Cigales. Rueda is producing white wines of class, Toro who claim a unique Version of the Tempranillo grape produce red wines that can match most qualities in Spain. For summer drinking the light fruity wines from Cigales are perfect.

Castilla La Mancha famed for many reasons in Spain's history is the SEVENTH region of Spain where the interest of Alexander Hadleigh Wine Merchants extends. This huge central plateaux is home to many assorted grape varieties including Garnache and Tempranillo and is by far the largest single area for wine production in Spain. Careful selection will be rewarded with excellent value wines.
